OASIS group encourage men to speak out this World Suicide Prevention Day

This World Suicide Prevention Day Chilypep’s Barnsley-based OASIS group came together to spotlight the stigma surrounding young men and boys’ mental health and encourage them to talk about their feelings.

Suicide is the leading cause of death for men under the age of 50 and the OASIS group want to help those feeling desperate to reach out and ask for help.

To add their voices to the #AlrightPal campaign supported by Barnsley Council, the OASIS group created the following video clip to demonstrate the different ways people react to men opening up.

The first scenario in which a young man admits to a friend that he is feeling low shows a series of negative, stigmatising responses such as ‘man up,’ ‘get over it,’ ‘you’re bringing everyone down.’  The second scenario offers more supportive, encouraging responses.

You Alright Pal Video

The video is part of the OASIS group’s larger, ongoing campaigning around mental health. The group are currently working on their own campaigns to help young people like themselves find their inner hero and see the positivity in mental health.
